Livestream from the Digestive System: Magnet-Guided Camera Capsules for More Pleasant Gastroscopies

Many patients dread the thought of having to swallow tubes to give their doctors a look at their gastrointestinal tracts. Long waits caused by the lack of specialists offering the procedure make this experience even worse. Working with two dedicated partners, Fraunhofer IZM is researching a completely tubeless technology in the nuEndo project supported by Germany’s Ministry of Education and Research. Their vision: a simple-to-swallow capsule, equipped with cameras and guided by an external magnetic system.

Gastroscopies remain risky procedures that need to be conducted by highly qualified and sought-after specialists after years of training. The natural gag...

Stroke therapy - study shows positive effects of Urokinase

Mechanical removal of blood clots is the therapy of choice for stroke patients. Peripheral, small blood vessels with reduced or blocked patency are, however, problematic. The study by the Department of Neurology and the University Institute for Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, and the University of Bern demonstrates clear advantages of a simultaneous intra-arterial administration of Urokinase, a blood-clot-dissolving substance (thrombolytic).

Since 2015, the mechanical removal of the blood clot (endovascular mechanical thrombectomy) has been the standard procedure for treating patients with an...

Im Focus: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....

Im Focus: The lightest electromagnetic shielding material in the world

Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.
